In an October community meeting, more than 100 neighbors questioned Metrolink officials regarding the toxic air and noise pollution they inflict on the neighbors, 7 days a week, around the clock.
Very serious health concerns including cancer, asthma, chronic bronchitis, COPD, preeclampsia, premature birth, low birth weight, and premature death are associated to long term exposure to sources of Diesel Particulate Matter.
Metrolink, as promised, is returning to a community meeting to respond to calls for reducing their air and noise emissions.
